How do regional food systems drive entrepreneurship?
Join this free Connecting Communities® webinar to explore using regional food system investments to drive entrepreneurial activity and small business development.
Speakers will discuss technical support that can be provided to entrepreneurs, as well as creative tools for financing regional food enterprises. The webinar will highlight how organizations are working to ensure that the opportunities created through regional food investments are available to all, including traditionally marginalized populations.
The webinar will draw on research in a new book, Harvesting Opportunity.
